Yoga Teacher Training
at the stunning location of Lake Como, Italy...
Como is nestled in the heart of breath-taking lake and mountain scenery. A tranquil, scenic, quaint and elegant small northern Italian city. Boasting villas, gardens and enchanting cobblestone walks, meters from the lake.
Enjoy an 'apero' after a day's training followed by an exquisite farm to table Italian dinner on the lakeside, soaking in the twinkling lights that dance across the lake...
Some might know that the concept of Zero km food is a concept that first appeared in Italy. Italians are proud of 'farm to table' solutions and by taking such pride in knowing where and how their food arrives to the table, Italians have secured world records for health and longevity.
It's not often one can take time off work. Time away from family and the day to day responsibilities of life. How often do we gather our finances and invest in 10xDays in person sessions of learning and growth, simply for ourselves?
We take the stunning natural aspects of the location of Lake Como, the classic details of Italian daily life from our local knowledge and the standard Yoga Teacher Training syllabus, to deliver a truly Italian Yoga Teacher Training experience.
Our goal is to move beyond classroom delivery of textbook materials, and carry the understanding and discovery of Yoga philosophy and other key topics into local, memorable experiences around Lake Como.
The course is intense. You will have a lot of daily tasks to prepare in order to pre-familiarise yourself with concepts before they are presented and deepened in workshops. What you sow, you will reap.
Be guaranteed that your Yoga Teacher Training course will prove to be a deep and meaningful discovery of yourself, Italy and the hidden gems of this beautiful lake town, Como.
This Yoga Teacher Training is the first of it's kind in Como center with a venue located in the heart of Como's old quarter.
Live like a local enjoying accommodation in the heart of Como's old quarter and hopping into a local cafe for your cappuccino and cornetto breakfast each morning.

Accommodation can be difficult and costly to find in Como.
There are many 1 person, 2 person, 3 person and 4 person self catering apartments dotted around the city center on streets such as Via Torno, Via Indipenenza, and Via Vittorio Emmanuele. Each accommodation is within a short walk to the edges of the lake and the Yoga Teacher Training Venue.
As everyone is travelling to Como on a different budget we do not include accommodation in our package. This way, you can choose to stay in a local hostel or a more high end hotel stay such as the Hilton Lake Como or Sheraton Lake Como shoudl you wish. We have brokered special rates with a number of accommodations in Como. Be sure to ask us before you book so we can support you.
We are more than happy to support you with your accommodation search so that you find something that's feasible to get to the training center each day and 'live like a local' walking from point to point in the evenings.
Enjoy a local living experience in the heart of Como during your teacher training and explore the wide abundance of bars, cafes, restaurants, shops and offerings this charming lake side city has to offer.

BeWell - Owner and Lead Trainer
BeWell-Yoga Teacher Training School
I began my wellness journey over 7 years ago in Lake Como, Italy and lived there for about 7 years also.
My wellness journey has taken me on training courses and retreats in Italy, Spain, Morocco, Sri Lanka and Bali in search of learning ancient Wellness skills rooted in Yoga, Meditation, Ayurveda, Mindfulness, Yoga Philosophy and Sound Healing.
I qualified as an internationally recognised RYT-200 Yoga Teacher in January 2015 having studied intensively in Ubud, Bali.
I spent some time offering Vinyasa Flow Yoga lessons in and around Lake Como, Milan and Ticino, Switzerland before moving back to Ireland in Summer 2019 to focus on BeWell-Ireland and BeWell-Yoga Teacher Training School.
Since then I have delivered the BeWell Yoga Teacher Training program 12 Times to over 120 Yoga Teacher Trainees from all over the world. It's been delivered 100% in person, 100% online and most recently in a Hybrid mechanic with some in person elements and some online elements.
BeWell Longford (our brick and mortar Yoga Studio/Holistic Center) opened it's doors in September 2021. We are so excited to have our own headquarters where we can serve the local community with Yoga, Pilates and Holistic treatments.
Operating a Yoga Studio/Holistic centre further supports the strength and quality of our teacher training programs. We understand the real world daily and weekly needs of the clients and the community and have built out a solid financial model so that the needs of the community are being met as are the financial needs of the business. This sets us apart enormously from YTT courses provided by other schools who do not operate as actual studios. Not only so we understand the real life needs of the future client of our teacher training graduates, we work with them continuously.
My passion is empowering people on their personal journey to Wellbeing and coaching people on daily habits and practises to help them reach their highest potential.
Lake Como is very special to me having lived there for almost a decade and managed to master the language!
I cannot wait to share my insider tips with you @ my home away from home - Lago Di Como
Emma started a yoga practice in 2008 while living a fast paced London life that was mostly frustrating, overwhelming and uninspiring! 'Yoga gave me a rare chance to slow down, become introspective and connect to my body in a way I had never experienced before.'
Over time the practice taught Emma how to have easier and steadier access to presence, awareness, intuition and self-connection. It sparked an inner shift that made her happier, more peaceful, and more in touch with the love and wisdom at each of our core.
With a dream to live a healthy, purpose-filled life in service of something bigger, she packed up her London life and embarked on her first teacher training in 2010 with Absolute Yoga in Thailand.
Since then, it has been a journey of continuous learning and growth as she expands her understanding of this age old practice. Emma completed my advanced teacher training with highly regarded international teachers Julie Martin and Emil Wendell in India in 2014, and has accumulated over 1000 hrs of training in total. She has spent years on a deeply rich and rewarding Yoga adventure, exploring various lineages and methodologies, and will always remain a student of this ever evolving practice. Emma draws from current research, somatic meditation, tantric yoga philosophy, and the many inspirational teachers, guides and mentors she has met along the way, in the hope she can offer meaningful learning experiences to her students.
Emma has led groups on retreats to the most beautiful and exotic destinations, shared classes in rustic Yoga shalas in India, ran workshops in slick studios in South East Asia, and trained and mentored teachers from every corner of the globe. Not only has she experienced first-hand the transformative power of this practice, but again and again she have witnessed people from all walks of life move beyond their limitations and spark a change that leads to more compassionate, awake and connected humans. 'This is the real reason why I love what I do and why I want to share it with you!'

Having run our courses before we understanding that not everyone wants to be cooped up in the training centre from dawn to dusk practising yoga. Particularly if you have travelled from far and wide.
Our in person training element takes that into consideration.
Having delivered the course multiple times over we are masters of efficiency.
You will be training at the centre for approximately 5 hours per day.
Full focus and attention is required for these sessions.
Following that there will be optional recreational/tourism activities in the area for you to enjoy in the evenings.
Afterall, our entire course is on the training platform. Why spend hours pouring over theory work you can do when you get home...when you could be learning how to make pasta from scratch...or village hopping by boat on the stunningly beautiful Lake Como...
We asked. We heard. We integrated!
